Hiking & Running

Get On Your Feet! Annually, more than 2.5 million Americans find their way to the iconic Towpath Trail that stretches through the heart of the Ohio & Erie Canalway.


The trail is also great for running because of the surface, which is generally flat and composed of crushed limestone, which has less of a negative impact on a runner’s body. Whether you are running to stay in shape or enjoying a leisurely form of exercise, we encourage you to check out some running events that occur along the Towpath Trail. There are a series of marathon races put on at various times of the year along with running clubs for you to join!
